Ripponden in Bloom Newsletter

July 2012

This month
The jubilee stone has been hoisted into position at Jubilee Gardens. Funded by a grant from the Community Foundation for Calderdale it makes a striking commemoration for the Diamond Jubilee. It has been carved by Brian Brooks from BD Brooks in the village.

Grant
The group has been given a £200 grant from Townson Thornber from their Bursary Scheme for us to buy plants and gifts for our tombola stall at Rushbearing.

Police Help
We were delighted to receive many pots, canes and liquid feed, from the Police. These were the proceeds of crime during Policing in Calderdale and are shared around in bloom groups throughout the area.

Yorkshire In Bloom
Thanks to all our superb volunteers who turned out to make the village spick and span for the judging. It went down really well take a look at some of the superb barrels around the village well done to all who manage them.

Can You Help?

Do you have any unwanted brick-a-brac which we could make use of on our Prize Every Time Tombola at Rushbearing? If you have anything we could use just ring one of the committee and we will arrange to collect. Thank you.

Thank you to all
